Question about Altec Lansing VS4121 Speaker
I've had problems with these speakers in the past, but I was generally able to solve them by uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers. This time it is not working, no matter what I do. I have gone through the entire windows troubleshooter and it was no help at all. Windows says the speakers are working properly, yet no sound comes out. Same problem with both speakers and the subwoofer. Please help.
If removing and reinstalling the driver fixed your problem then there was nothing wrong with the speakes. There was probably a problem with your soundcard drivers.
That being said, you should double check that you speakers are plugged in to the right sound board connector and the power supply is plugged into the wall outlet.
Does you computer have a headphone jack? If it does, you might try plugging a headset into it to see if you can hear sound there. If you do then you'll know the soundboard is working properly and maybe the speakers really are part of the problem. CD/DVD drives usually have a headset jack, but this will only work if a cable was run inside the computer from the CD/DVD drive to either the soundboard or motherboard.
What kind of computer do you have? Do you know if you have on board sound or a seperate sound board?
